MedoraiPrimordial or Conceptual:
Conceptual. Domain: Knowldege
Knowledge is a powerful tool in the right hands. It allows one to search through history in order to pull wisdom throughout the ages. Medorai exemplifies this aspect. He is able to grant inspirational knowledge to those he deems worthy and can take away that same knowledge. Mortals who worship him are blessed with a drive to discover all there is to know within the waking world and ambition for higher learning. In order to stay within the gods good graces Medorai demands that all knowledge be gathered, stored, and cataloged so that others may use what has been discovered. Libraries are his temple, book keepers are his priests and all knowledge is his dogma.Portfolio: Logic
Knowledge, in it’s purest form, can be chaotic and difficult to understand. Logic grants one a solid and definitive way to gather knowledge without making a muck of things and befouling what they’ve learned. The mortals blessed with this gift have a higher intellect than others and have a better grasp on mental defense. Their emotions are better guarded against pain, strife and even have a clearer head for strategic combat. However logic can have a very narrow view and can often lead to a sense of stubbornness. If one is not able balance logic it can overwhelm it’s user with it’s narrowness.Their Realm: Librārium Aeternitās
The Librārium Aeternitas, more commonly known as The Library, is a massive domed cathedral type building that stretches as far as the eye can see. Upon entering the realm there is an overwhelming presence of calm which brings forth the desire to peruse the vast collection of tomes and scrolls that line the halls. The many windows provide perfect lighting to read and there are never any dark corners within it’s vast halls. Time seems to fade here leaving all the time in the world to read learn all the Library has to offer.
The core structure is a massive domed cathedral surrounded by bookshelves that reach the sky called the Arbitorium. In the center is a massive stage where all manner of things can be taught, passed down from the highest authority to those who seek enlightenment. This is where Medorai spends much of his days doling knowledge to any and all who would seek it out. Spanning in all directions, lay a labyrinth of hallways and corridors that give way to thousands upon thousands of bookshelves with seemingly endless tomes and scrolls. Every so often through these rows are clearings with tables where one could research and study and never leave their section.
Strange creatures exist in this realm which have been dubbed Librarians. These creatures share a resemblance to Medorai with their long sleek feline body, great wings to carry them anywhere within the Library at great speeds and finally a head much like a human woman. These creatures tend to the Library with meticulous fervor, protecting the contents of the Library with great care aiding in the search for particular items.
There is a place, however, that none but the god of knowledge is allowed to tread. In the furthest reaches of the Library lies a vault that contains knowledge that is to dangerous for outside use. There are certain things that mortals should not know and the vault is the only place, both gods and mortals, cannot enter without help. Dark secrets and mysteries that could cause great devastation and sow chaos if used incorrectly and encompasses all the things that mortals should not know.Persona:
Medorai is by all accounts a teacher first and foremost. His calm yet stern demeanor grants him the uncanny ability to impart wisdom far greater than even the most articulate of deities. He sees mortals, and gods alike, as potential students to impart great wisdom to and has since made it his mission teach and gather all the knowledge that he can. He views himself as a father wishing to pass along what he knows to the next generation.
While he does have a kind and teaching nature, there is a side that Medorai does not use very often. There are those that abuse knowledge or even worse attempt to destroy that which exists and it is then that Medorai unleashes his fury. Knowledge is a sacred thing and to those who would dare destroy or prevent knowledge from being passed one would insure the full wrath of the God of Knowledge.
To better define a previous statement, Medorai is very social with the other deities. Some he seeks constant collaboration seeing them as colleagues in conference to add to his collection in the Library. Others he sees as test subjects looking to study his divine brothers and sisters attempting to glean more insight into the nature of the gods. He finds mortals especially interesting as they are able to discover more with less time that they have. He finds them utterly fascinating and can often be found giving inspiration to those he deems as his favorite.Base Form:
In his most common form Medorai appears as a massive sphinx; that being the body of a lion, the wings of an eagle, and the head of what appears to be a human. Where he differs from his Librarian counterparts, however, is that he appears as a male compared to his workers. He is often seen wearing what appears to be silver armor imbedded with turquoise gems across the shoulders. Upon his brow rests a similar silver crown adorned with a massive pearl on his forehead and is crested with feathers coming from the back. His fur is as blue as the oceans and is always in a state of pristine condition.Domain Form:
Within his domain Medorai releases every shackle that his base form presents and allows himself to be in his natural state. He grows in size as does his age. His face wrinkles to that of a man well into his golden years, his beard grows and drags the ground. His eye radiate with the overflowing power within his realm. His wings change into a darker blue and his fur becomes a golden brown. Avatar: Ashaii – Ambassador of Knowledge (AH-SHA-HAI)
Ashaii is know more prominently as the Head Librarian within Medorai's domain. She wields a impressive recollection of most items stored within the realm and bears a great love for everything within. She is the personification of Medorai's desire to scour the world for new knowledge and bring it back to be classified. Much like the other Librarians, she bears a resemblance to her creator however she has been stated to be the most beautiful of her colleagues. Her entire body is a shimmering cerulean tone with piercing eyes that is able to ascertain the very nature of what she’s studying. Her hair flows like a river and her head is adorned with two wing like extensions.
